Lost and Found – Friday Fictioneers

This 100 word story is a continuation of The Escape – Friday Fictioneers. If you want a better idea of what’s going on in this story, I suggest you read that first.

Eric was startled from his slumber thanks to someone pounding on the door to his suite. With a yawn he threw on the silk robe he had taken from a naive tourist. He didn’t normally steal from his victims but it was of his refined taste and he’d hate to see it go to waste.

He opened the door but no one was there, just a letter at his feet. He caught the faint trace of a familiar scent as he bent down to pick up the envelope. It couldn’t be. Eric swallowed hard when he saw the handwriting. Elle?!

Guess Who Found You

  1. Aha! She found him.. For a second I thought it’s Elle herself standing on the door. πŸ™‚ Can’t wait to read what’s written in the letter.

    • “A murderer with morals? Intriguing take.” While I think vampires have their own moral codes, I don’t think that applies with the stealing thing. He doesn’t steal because he considers it above a person of his station in life. Stealing is for gutter trash, not men of noble blood.

      Thank you for catching the “he”. I’m always catching other people’s mistakes. I can’t believe I didn’t catch my own.

  2. Great story. Something very strange is happening to the fictioneers this week – there’s collaborations, people borrowing words from each other and now sequels! Can’t wait to see what happens next πŸ™‚

  3. Dear MisAnthroPicMuse,

    I looked back into the past and read your first story (which I missed while out disc golfing on Maui) and found the pair to be delightful. Eric didn’t get his two hundred years, did he? Perhaps the letter is a request for child support. I wonder what form that would take? Well done.

    Aloha,

    Doug

    • “disc golfing on Maui” Sounds like you had a darn good reason to miss out on that week’s Friday Fictioneers. Having fun in outdoors Maui definitely trumps staying in and reading. πŸ™‚

      I too wonder what form child support would take in a vampire clan. It’s an interesting concept that should be explored.
